Food Diary: What I Ate Wednesdays Featuring Diet Diva PH // 10

The unthinkable has happened: the word diet (or the battlecry “di nako magra-rice kahit kailan!!!”) is no longer part of my daily vocabulary.

It is the most liberating thing I have ever felt… ever!!!

To eat all the rice I want.
To eat an occasional bag of potato chips and not internally berate myself for it.
To go nuts with beer and not wail about my fratman’s gut for the next few days.
To re-consider stopping by McDonald’s on my way to the office not because it’s fattening, but because it’s shit food.
To have dessert.
Etc etc.

It’s really great. I’ve gained some weight but I am oddly more comfortable with my body now. I think I just stopped caring! Someone’s always going to be fatter than I am anyway.

I still have terrible eating habits, though. Skipping meals, eating junk— that sort of thing.

Good thing my buddy, Tin, gave me the gift of Diet Diva! Free food! Meals delivered to me every morning! No reason not to eat! Rice! For one whole week!

This time around, I did Diet Diva just so I could eat like a healthy, normal person.

Here are the things the good folks at Diet Diva put in my tummy last week:

My 2013 Christmas Wishlist

Gifts will make me smile!

Hey, what the haps! It’s been a while :(

Today, I am coming out of my unintentional blogging hiatus to quickly post my Christmas wishlist. For the first time in my 28 years, there’s nothing I passionately want (except a body pillow, which I’ve already asked my mom for) but if I’m getting a certain DJ guy a gift, you bet I expect something in return*!

This is really just a guide because ultimately, I’d like to be surprised!

Snaps From Hong Kong: Avenue of Stars and Madame Tussaud’s

I mostly shopped, ate, and did touristy stuff the five days I was in Hong Kong last month. I wasn’t really in the mood to immerse myself in culture-y stuff because pa-culture is the new pa-cool and I’m just tryna keep it rill. Plus it rained two or three days while we were there, making exploring a bit hard. Besides, it’s just Hong Kong; it’s super easy to go back.

The Sunday Currently // 1

Picked this up from Camie‘s blog! Here is the link to the original The Sunday Currently blog link-up.



Ape and Essence by Aldous Huxley. It’s one of those books I’ve had in my library for nearly a decade but never got around to picking up. I’m trying to read more these days but it’s a little hard because I gave my Nook to my dad and I’m not a fan of carrying around books.
